Cartouche of Seti I
Seti I was the offspring and successor of Ramesses I. His name in the cartouche reads from right to left: "Seti-mer-en-Ptah", or "Seti beloved of (the god) Ptah." The first character of Seti's name is formed using the hieroglyph of the god Seth. Because Seth murdered his brother Osiris, the Seth hieroglyph was considered evil and tended to be erased wherever it was found. It is rare to see it undisturbed, as here.
